Scholarship Essay Contest

Law Student Scholarship Essay Contest

Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., is a Washington, D.C., employment law firm that represents public- and private-sector workers.  Our attorneys worked hard to earn undergraduate and law degrees, and we understand the value of education.  We also understand that college can place a tremendous financial strain on both students and their families.  As a result, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to a current law school student.  The scholarship will be awarded to the winner of an essay contest.

  3. An essay of no more than 1,000 words on the following topic:  Should employers be required to provide a termination letter, explaining the reason(s) for firing or laying off an employee?  Why or why not?
